What is Intensive?

The Austin Stone Worship Intensive is a 2-day training where we invite a small group of worship pastors into our family to learn and grow together as leaders, pastors, and shepherds.

Through 6 different master class sessions we will share our cultural foundations that shape who we are and what we do. We also have built in times for Q&A with our leadership both in large group and a one-on-one setting. Finally, we will share a handful of meals together that will allow for even more time to process together.

Our hope is that these Intensives will serve to help worship ministry leaders work out some of the many complex and unique difficulties they face. We realize we have a lot to learn, but we also want to be a resource in the things that God has allowed us to go through.

Subjects we cover include:

  • Culture
  • Development
  • Liturgy
  • Excellence
  • Engagement
  • Togetherness
  • Theology
  • Production
  • more…

Frequently Asked Questions

No. You must cover your own travel costs to get to Austin.
No. You must cover your own lodging costs. There are a handful of affordable hotels around the For The City Center to choose from as well as “glamping” at Green Acres. We do have a few team members that may have a spot in their home to stay a night or two if you are on a tight budget. If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Darnell (daniel@austinstone.org).
Unfortunately, in order to keep Intensives small and relational we are only allowing 30 people max to participate. We will not have room for a spouse or guest to join us if they are not also registered for Intensive. However, they are welcome to travel with you, enjoy the city of Austin, and even attend our dinner at Green Acres on Wednesday night!
If you are unable to register it is because we only have 30 spots per Intensive in order to keep them small and relational. We wish we could accommodate everyone but we simply can’t. Sign up for our email updates or check this site for our next Intensive registration dates.
You are welcome to stay as long as you want and even attend a Sunday service if you’d like, but Intensive officially ends Thursday after lunch.
There will be plenty of time over meals and breaks to talk with our leadership and team, but we cannot guarantee everyone will get individual time with a particular worship leader. We will do our best to free up our team so that they are available to talk and answer any question you may have.
Due to the limited nature of the Intensive and the cost we incur to host them, we can only offer refunds 30 days after registration. However, we can transfer your spot to another worship leader or attendee if need be.
Due to the limited number of people attending each Intensive, we can only allow 5 people per church to attend at one time. We encourage you to take what you learn and teach it to your team within your own context and culture!
